The Irish-Chinese Green Dragon has suffered a setback in the second leg of the Volvo Ocean race.

The yacht suffered a broken boom in a 50 knot squall 1500 miles off Mauritius at 11am this morning.

The crew are currently undertaking repair work but may have to dock in the island paradise if their efforts are unsuccessful.
